Teen daughter

My 12 yo daughter came out as non binary and lesbian. Said she learned it on TikTok and I’m extremely concerned

Hi @Riannyn1 

I just responded on your other thread too but I just wanted to say well done on being brave and reaching out for support. I can only imagine how hard this must be for you and just want to say that you're not alone.

I found another article that might be helpful, it is an Australian website though so not all of the links will be relevant, but The Raising Children's Network has a great article on Gender Identity and I wonder if it might be able to give you an idea on where to go next.

As this can be such a hard situation to be in, I was just wondering about supports and if you might feel comfortable talking to someone about all of this, whether it be a trusted GP or another health professional?

I just want to remind you that you're not alone and we're all here for you.
